Feel “Protected”?

Living near an air farce base, I see a lot of military aircraft flying overhead. Usually big old prop-driven dinosaurs, but recently a couple of fighter jets zipped over the house.

It made me wonder if there’s anyone still gullible enough to feel “protected” by this sight.

Probably the same people who breathe a sigh of relief when a cop pulls onto the highway behind them– knowing they can now relax, since the cop will be selflessly watching out for their safety.
